Thirtysix learning disabled children (21 of whom were also classified as hyperactive) were subgrouped according to teacher ratings of tension-anxiety and conduct problems and then compared on measures of tonic and phasic autonomic arousal.

The results indicated that children rated high on the conduct problem dimension evidenced smaller amplitude specific skin conductance responses, and that. Physiological measures, sedative drugs and morbid anxiety.

Maudsley Monographs, No. Oxford University Press: London. It is impossible to review all areas of such an enormous topic as anxiety.

This article will concentrate on the bodily aspects of anxiety, both clinical and theoretical implications. In particular, the relationship between psychophysiological factors, somatic symptoms and theories of anxiety will be explored.

However, such physiological measures must be calibrated against other aspects of anxiety (Krause, ): (i) subjective reports of the presence and the intensity of the emotion of anxiety; (ii) observations of the behaviour, gestures and facial expression by an independent witness; and (iii) indirect inferences from alterations in psychological.

Certain drugs used in the treatment of patients with anxiety disorders can interact with other psychotropic drugs and with pharmacological treatments for physical illnesses. An effective sedative (anxiolytic) agent should reduce anxiety and exert a calming effect.

The degree of central nervous system (CNS) depression caused by a sedative should be the minimum consistent with therapeutic efficacy. A hypnotic drug should produce drowsiness and encourage the onset and maintenance of a state of sleep. Hypnotic effects. SUMMARY Physiological and clinical studies were carted out on 90 patents comprising five groups-anxiety-with-depression, anxiety state, agoraphobia, social phobia and specific monosymptomatic phobia The physiological study consisted of a standardized laboratory procedure in which the palmar skin conductance was recorded during the presentation.

Anxiety levels tended to be higher in the control group, although these differences did not reach statistical significance. For trait (chronic) anxiety, 12 of 19 (%) control subjects and 6 of 13 (%) intervention patients had scores greater than 84%, a level consistent with a clinical state of chronic anxiety (p = ).

THE EXPERIENCE of anxiety appears to offer opportunities for experimental study and objective measurement with a precision lacking in other psychological states.

A sedative is a substance that induces sedation by reducing irritability or excitement. At higher doses it may result in slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain of sedatives such as benzodiazepines when used as a hypnotic to induce sleep tend to be higher than those used to relieve anxiety where as only low doses are needed to provide calming.

The therapeutic benefit of anxiolytics and sedatives is well-established, but their value in alleviating stress and anxiety is also probably the reason that they are abused so frequently.
